IBS January sneak peek #2...

 Hello everyone!

For those of you joining me today for the Inspired by Stamping sneak peek blog hop, welcome! To my usual visitors, I'm glad to see you again!

Don't forget that I only have 1 of the soon to be released sets, so make sure you hop through all the blogs to see all the sneak peeks! Also, tomorrow is the big release day party! You'll be finally be able to see all the fabulous stamps in each of the yummy sets!

 Isn't this little guy sweet?  I did a couple different layers of embossing powders here for lots of fabulously vintage-y texture.  It looks so much better IRL than I could capture in a photo!

Want to know something cool?  This entire card was made out of cheap white cardstock!

The background for this card was also made using a single stamp from this set.  I stamped the phrase over and over with clear embossing ink. then covered it with clear embossing powder.  I applied layers of Distress ink, then used an iron and a scrap of paper to melt off all the embossing powder.  Because these are clear stamps, I was then able stamp directly over one of the ghost images to highlight the saying in black.  Don't you love it when your stamps can do more than one thing!

Be sure to visit the other DT blogs to see more fabulous projects made with the soon to be released stamp sets!
